SlowQuest – A Choose Your Own Adventure Zine – Quest I: The Goblin Guard
Sometimes you see a zine, and you instantly know that you want to get a copy. This is one of those zines.
SlowQuest is a choose your own adventure zine taking you on an adventure for glory and riches! Standing in your way? A goblin guard…
I love this zine so much. On the aesthetic side, it’s superb. It’s well made, the art is incredibly detailed and invites you to inspect it closely, the cream-coloured interior paper suits very well, everything is so nicely put together, and even the corners are rounded. The whole thing is not only fun but speaks to a dedication to making even the tactile experience of the zine a good one.
I have talked a little bit about zine re-readability in reviews, but this is re-readability of a different sort. After I found out that my ‘natural instinct’ adventurer days would be about as monetarily rewarding as my actual life (hahaha), I immediately went back to trying all the different possibilities. The size of the zine is deceptive in that there were even more options than I expected there to be.
I felt like a kid again, and it was awesome.
Also, two thumbs way up for clear contact details:
This is one of those zines that I’m probably going to have to get another copy to loan out because I don’t want anyone messing with my copy.
PS. Shout out to Zine-O-Matic for having such good taste in zines and for granting a wish on my zine wishlist. 🙂
